For Uttara-azadha births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Iswara, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Nunki. Their purpose is to express the radiant clear light of truth in an orderly, institutional framework.
Dhanuzya Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. Nakshatrapathi Suyra and Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns. Pada-1 tends to be paternalistic, politically savvy, self-referential to the point of self-righteousness, and generous of spirit. Iconic and inspirational teachers of the patriarchal lineages are found here. Often found in the role of philosopher, professor, or guru-figure. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine the degree of optimism and alignment with the prevailing doctrine.
Makara-pada 2-3-4 express the tension between structural Shani and solipsistic Surya. From the Makara lagna, nakshatrapathi Surya becomes the revelatory, illuminating randhresha. Thus pada 2-3-4 are mystical and gender-neutral (Shani). Pada 2-3-4 demonstrate respect for age and orderly governance. Yet their purpose is visionary (Surya). Psychics and seers are found here. Depending on the vigor of Shani, hierarchical institutions may come to surround their initiatory teachings.. Their emotional stability in partnership arises from Chandra = yuvathipathi.
Themes of clairsentient vision, personal certainty, and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttara-azadha.

A peace loving disposition.

Many historians opine that JS was a textbook narcissist with a psychological need for inordinate levels of authority and power. Despite his humble origins, JS quickly developed a cult based in a revealed sacred scripture, a secret liturgy, and himself as the charismatic central figure.
Surya occupies Mula nakshatra
Surya rules the Uttarazadha - Vaizva radical lagna

Dad = Joseph Smith Sr.
Dad was reported to be a somewhat withdrawn man who was nonetheless excitable in the moment. As part of the occult spiritualism movement which swept through New England and the mid-Atlantic region during the early 1800's, Dad was a rod-worker ; with a passion for summoning spirits
Surya in bhava-12 rules bhava-8, providing a Sarala-Yoga protection for both father and son despite their occult (8) adventures.
Surya-Mula indicates a somewhat disconnected personality who may act with disregard for consequences. The family moved often as restless Dad (Mula) sought opportunities Surya-yuti-Rahu-12.
As randhresha, Surya indicates dad's interest in the occult and in hidden treasures. Dad had failed as numerous professions and while his sons were maturing he organized them into a treasure-hunting team.
Dad had a famous series of seven symbolic dreams (12), which are recorded in the church scripture. Just before he died, dad gained some respect as church patriarch Surya-Dhanuzya.

Mom = Lucy Mack Smith .
Lucy hailed from a family known for spiritual vision and pronounced demonstrations of public piety. She was an important social figure in the Second Awakening era of fervent Christian Revivalism.
Before, during, and after her son JS's prominent religious leadership career, mom was an influential force in the Mormon Community. After her son's death in 1844, she lived 12 further years until 1856, facilitating trust and accordance (Chandra rules 7-negotiations).
Lucy Mack can be considered as a Founding Mother of the emerging religious-economic congregation.
According to wikipedia entry for Lucy Mack,
"In rural areas of northern New England, the proliferation of evangelical religious sects and the pre-Victorian emphasis on the family as a moral force were especially significant forces in Mack's life. Migrants to this area had taken with them the revolutionary spirit of political independence. They had also encouraged the breakdown of the old order of religious domination. "The grip of colonial religious culture was broken and a new American style of religious diversity came into being." Such a setting became fertile ground for religious experimentation and the birth of indigenous religious sects, some of which "undertook to redefine social and economic order through the model of the extended family." Without stable institutional structures, the family thus became the "crucible" for forming "primary identity, socialization, and cultural norms for rural life" (Marini, 7, 56, 31). Mack was a product of this environment. "
Chandra-1 yuvatipathi indicates a primary, predominant, emotionally binding, identity-defining relationship with the mother.
Somana-yuti-Zukra-double-yogakaraka adds to the maternal profile strong elements of social status, ladder-climbing toward financial and political rank, and moral (Chandra) leadership ability.

History records Emma Hale Smith as a supportive lifepartner who was allied with her husband's personality and agreed with his programs. After JS death, she defended his reputation against slanderous claims.

Starting in Mangala Mahadasha when he was age-14, Smith was periodically hired as a scryer (psychic) to assist local treasure-hunters. Western New York in the 1820's was experiencing a craze for treasure hunting. Gambling was frowned upon by pious folk, but there was no taboo on the thrill of treasure hunting.
Economic downturns were frequent in the years 1820-1850. Farming was unpredictable due to fluctuating weather, with the years 1830 until 1845 recorded as terribly cold with effectively no real growing season. The theme of sudden rescue from poverty and despair was often expressed through a hope for discovery of miraculous wealth buried under ground.
Popular tools of the scrying trade included various clairsentience-amplifying stones including the legendary seer-stones utilized by Smith to read the Golden Plates.
17-Jan-1827 Joseph Smith married Emma Hale in Ohio (his age 22) during Rahu-Guru bhukti. In 1830, upon Divine Admonition in Rahu-Shani bhukti, he took a first plural wife (his age 25).
During the bhukti 1830-1844, Joseph Smith acquired 40 wives ceremonially married in the Mormon Church.
